It’s time to meet a California-based company called Trion Supercars that is launching the 2,000-horsepower Nemesis. It’s supposed to be a driver-oriented sportscar and is aimed at the wealthiest people in the world. At the moment it still only exists in renderings, though.
“We want to be the Nemesis of the Europeans,” said company leader Richard Patterson about inspiration for the name. The company claims it’s going to be one of the world’s fastest cars when it’s ready, theoretically packing a twin-turbo V8 with more than 2,000 hp and an eight-speed sequential gearbox. The company believes that its creation could hit 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of over 270 mph. If that is the case, then it would put the newcomer against the heavyweights like the Hennessey Venom GT and Koenigsegg Agera One:1.
All of these figures are just speculation until its wheels actually hit the road, though. Patterson says a prototype will test this year, and sales will begin next year for around $1 million each.
The Nemesis has a body and chassis made from carbon fiber, and the interior features digital panels to display the gauges, plus a screen for Internet connectivity. The company is also touting the car’s Predator Mode that modifies the interior lighting, ride height, suspension tuning, exhaust and rev limits to make it even more aggressive. With a trunk large enough to accommodate a set of golf clubs, it even has a touch of utility.
The problem with these high end, boutique automakers is that until they launch a product their claims are difficult to believe. The Nemesis is making some huge promises that are going to be a challenge to live up to, to say the least.
So do you think that the Nemesis will be able to achieve the numbers they are hoping for? If they do match those numbers, would you prefer this car over other supercars?
